I have a small epic force that I bought many years ago (for almost no money at all), but the problem is that I have no idea what all of the things I have are. The current epic rulebook does not seem to support all of these units, and there seem to be a lot of generic vehicle types in it, so it would be interesting to know what these actually are (and what they are counted as):

There is a landraider & a unit of Beakies in the background, that I got with the ork force.

Look like Mek Speedstas, Bowel Burnas, Spleen Rippas and some Squigoths.

Thanks! That only leaves a single model unidentified. The ones right next to the squigoths. While they look like they belong in the speedsta family, their weapons don't match any of the speedsta weapons. It is a darn shame that most of these have been clumped together into generic vehicle categories in the current epic rulebook.

They are mekboy dragsters as well. There were speedstas armed with bubblechuckas, lifta droppas, rockets (like you have), one that looked like it didn't have weapons (but had a forcefield weapon), and the one here armed with cannons.

Yeah MTD is spot on. Those are cannon speedstas. There's also some lobba/rokkit dragstas to the right of them, in front of the land raider.

Not so much a rulesy-battlereporty-tacticy thing as a modely-Epicy thing. Off to the Epic sub forum.

You have some nice gun wagons which is what they are all lumped under now and some Gun Fortrestess which is what the Squigoffs are use as now.

Just for the sake of clarity, from left to right starting with img249: 3x Squiggoth, 4x Mekboy Speedsta with Kustom Kannon (the kustom kannon doesn't seem to show up in my 1996 catalog, but it is in the epic ork army book), 4x Mekboy speedsta with destruktor Rokkits, 3x Bowelburna, 3x Skullhammer, 2x Pulsa Rokkits (in front of the Skullhammers), 3x braincrushas, 1x Giblet Grinda, 2x Ork Dreads, 3x Squig Catapults (can't be sure about this number because the 4th one is cut off in the picture). I ignored the land raider and the random infantry base in the background.

Nice batch of stuff. Especially the beakie v1.0 Ork Dreads. ;) As for what counts as what for Epic Armageddon: Squiggoths = Squiggoths Mekboy Dragstas = Mekboy Speedstas or Gunwagonz Bowelburnas = Skorchas or Gunwagonz Skullhammas & Giblet Grinda = Battlefortress or Gunfortress Pulsa Rokkitz = Big Gunz Brainkrushas = Gunwagonz or as an Oddboyz Soopagun upgrade to Gunwagonz & Battlewagonz Squig Katapultz = Squig Katapultz or Big Gunz Onslaughter Dreadnoughts = Dreadnoughts

Alternatively just stick to the old rules, if Workshop can't be arced to support the specialist games just go with the rules that you like best. As the old rule can be expensive on eBay try here http://www.netepic.org/netepic.html

For  Laser Cut Terrain, Bases and accessories go toWar Games Tournaments

True enough. NetEpic is basically beakie/Titan Legions with improvements whereas Epic Armageddon (EA) is a much different game. EA is more widely used, but it's worth seeing what version the locals play.

Darn, I can never seem to remember these sub forums. Sorry about posting things in the wrong place and sorry about not replying to this thread earlier. Thanks everyone for your help, now I can at least use these fellows (if I can find someone to play with, that is :P ) And thanks for the link to NetEPIC, it looks quite a bit more interesting than the current set of epic rules that GW have on their homepage.
